Dear Thierry,

Of course you could disable ... but is it by enabled default?

Hmm... looking at
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/manpages-3/smb.conf.5.html#WRITEABLE
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/manpages-3/smb.conf.5.html#READONLY
it seems that writeable is off by default: a Samba installation, as per
default, is not vulnerable.

- Several distributions run with vulnerable settings per default
  if there is a "misconfiguration" it is part of the vendor.

Is that vendor Samba?

Cheers, Paul
